    Perfect for our low carb diet to replace that longing for mashed potatoes. I didn't change a thing and enjoyed creamy and goodness all in one.  -  13 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The real recipe that I found online for this dish for this calls for microwaving the cauliflower for 18-20 minutes, not cooking on the stovetop. You arent going to be able to cook this on the stovetop for that long in a few tablespoons of liquid.. it will burn. The recipe, when cooking the vegetables in the microwave is delicious..One star for the wrong directions in the personal and published recipe.. 5 stars when you make it the way the original author intended  -  15 Mar 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
